quick tiramisu trifle recipeI am typing this from our hotel room in Kansas City on my husband’s net book.  This will short, this teeny tiny keyboard is hard to type on.  We had a great weekend being tourists and seeing what Kansas and Missouri have to offer.  I love that the whole city smells like smoky wood and barbecue.  It might not really, but after a visit to Arthur Bryant’s, I am still dreaming about BBQ.  The burnt ends were everything that I was hoping for.  Sometimes when you read about something, you get sucked into the hype, and the end result is disappointing.  This was not the case.

We are leaving our hotel in Kansas City tomorrow and making our way closer to our new house.  The movers cannot deliver our household goods until Friday, so we are trying to keep busy in the meantime.  We will clean the house, figure out where everything should go, and tomorrow the cable guy comes.  Yeah!  We have not had cable in over a year, so we are excited to watch TV on an actual TV, not a laptop.

This quick tiramisu is a delight.  It is really easy, sometimes tiramisu can be involved, but if you can whip, dunk, and layer, you are in for a treat.

      It is a really good place to start, I also like that it has no eggs in it. Raw egg kind of grosses me out.

    Yum! Tiramisu is my all-time favorite dessert, but I am afraid of the raw eggs in most recipes so I have yet to make it at home. I will be trying this recipe very soon. I hope you enjoy your new home. I grew up in Lawrence/Kansas City. If you like Mongolian BBQ, you have to go to Genghis Kahn in midtown KCMO. I have dreams about that place. Check it out http://www.gkbbq.com.

  20. Anuradha says:

    Hi,
    How many servings oes this recipe make? Also can we use any other wafers since ladyfingers are mostly available during Thanksgiving?

    • bakedbree says:

      3 or 4? It depends on the size of the container you use. And ladyfingers are available year round. I buy them all the time. But, use whatever you want.

  21. Anuradha says:

    Hi,
    Looks delish! How many servings (ramekins) did this quantity of ingredients make?
